Instructor: E. Douglas Wunder
Skill Level: All skill levels
This workshop is intended to familiarize one with the understanding of how to transform titanium into a piece of jewelry. This will involve creating an object on paper that incorporates; scale,
balance, perspective, and contrast. These concepts will then be developed into metal objects using the techniques of piercing, sawing, and cold connecting with rivets. We will create wearable art pieces based on discussion and hands-on experience. The project will focus on making jewelry from hand-sawed pieces of titanium sheet, then layered and connected with titanium wire. Coloring techniques of titanium and niobium will also be explored.
Participants are encouraged to come with an imaginative, experimental approach to jewelry making.

About the Instructor:
My experience derives from working in jewelry design and production for over 30 years. The jewelry pieces involve constructed forms in mixed metals primarily titanium,
assembled in layers, and cold connected with rivets to give the finished piece a three-dimensional effect. Inspiration draws from nature and technological objects. I travel extensively throughout the United States demonstrating, showing and selling my work at exhibitions and art shows such as The ACC Craft Shows, The Chicago Old Town Art Fair, Longs Park Art and Craft Festival in Lancaster, PA.
Recent exhibitions include Wearable Expressions, CraftForms and The Mesa Art Museum’s Contemporary Crafts Exhibition. My work has appeared in several publications, such as Making Metal
Jewelry, Wrap, Stitch, Ford and Rivet, Showcase 500 Art Necklaces, Ornament Magazine, and Art Jewelry Magazine. My work has garnered a variety of recognition in 2017: The Saul Bell Award as a Finalist, Wearable Expressions for Honorable Mention, Krasl Art on the Bluff, First Place in Category and The Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsman for The Resolved Design Award.
